The best (and maybe the only) available emulators are Executor (www.ardi.com)
and Fusion (www.microcode-solutions.com). They use completely different
approaches: Executor creates a pseudo-Mac shell for running Mac programs and
relies upon a built-from-scratch emulation (that is no Mac ROMs are needed), at
the expense of a quite low compatibility; on the other hand, Fusion emulates
68040 code and uses true Mac ROMs images for the system emulation (therefore you
must have a Mac to build ROM images and use Fusion).
Personally, I do prefer Fusion, as it gives you an almost complete compatibility
and peripherals support.

Good luck!
